This was the very windy and wintery shoot we did just before Christmas (see earlier post). Our Aeronavics Ltd #SkyJib was pushed to its limits in the very challenging conditions.
To mark the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte's birth, Martha Kearney, novelist Helen Oyeyemi and journalist Lucy Mangan travel to Haworth Parsonage, the home of Charlotte and her sisters Emily and Anne, to discover the inspiration behind their classic novels Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey.
Being The Brontes
We completed some more filming for The One Show last week, in the wilds of Dartmoor National Park. Our brief was to shoot the swaling of the gorse and shrub, a centuries old practice. Swaling is the annual burning carried out in order to thin out the old vegetation in order to allow new grass shoots to grow thus providing grazing for the livestock.
We were very pleased to be invited back to Hampton Court Gardens to do some more work for them. We've been there today filming the daffodil display - beautiful.
